ENG-201 153 - English Composition II

This course is a continuation of English 101. It helps the student develop the ability to write longer expository essays. Students continue to focus on the writing process as they are introduced to literary genres such as the short story, play, poem or novel. These help the student develop some awareness of literary form and provide the basis for continued exposition. Students are expected to complete a research project that involves library research, documentation, and the use of source material in a thesis-centered essay.
